Pros

Pay is above min wage and you receive a raise 3 months 6 months and then every year (0.10), they have flexible schedule, if your a good employee (like myself) you can receive full time hours.

Cons

constantly firing and re-hiring, new polices almost everyday, small opportunity to move up if your manager doesn't favor you.

Advice to Management

check in and do surprise visit more often.

    Pros

    Fast-Paced and challenging work environment. Opportuninty to advance quickly if willing to relocate. Lots of opportunity for overtime.

    Cons

    The pay is hourly and low, they want you to work for bonuses. Upper management can be out of touch sometimes. Corporate will micro manage at every opportunity. Relocation is required for management trainees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, make sure you are focused on customer service as well.

  2. Very demanding for the rate of compensation

    Pros

    If you can stomach the long and odd hours, you will find that Menard offers a profit sharing plan that is not equaled in the industry. However, they also offer lower starting wages than some other home centers.

    Cons

    Menard has a lack of upper management. You won't find any regional managers, vice presidents etc. that are accessible to the everyday employee. Also there is not much for advancement opportunities at the executive level.

    Advice to Management

    I think they need to relate better with the hourly worker.
